What began as a whisper has grown to a dull roar as Americans question whether the Democratic National Convention is trying to pull a fast one on them pretending that former Vice President Joe Biden is their real candidate for the November election.
Biden, who has only increased his confusing and sometimes gibberish statements in public has become such a laughing stock among many that he has been one of the primary characters in his opponent’s campaign ads.
His running mate, however, is far less palatable to the American people, as was evidenced even by the liberal party that pushed her out of the running for president in the primary. The California senator is known to be an aggressively progressive politician and one that voters were unwilling to put into the Oval Office … except for the will of the DNC.
Questions as to whether a vote for a Biden presidency would really be a Harris presidency were all but confirmed over the last two days when both Biden and Harris referenced her as the primary candidate in what sounded like slips of the tongue.
Earlier this week Harris was making what appeared to be a well-prepared statement about hers and Biden’s platform when she called it the “Harris administration.”
“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States,” she said, according to Fox News. She attempted to right the ship with a quick clarification, “The Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments from minority business owners.”
Her comment caused a ripple among conservatives who have been calling out the sham of a Biden Harris ticket for months.
“Joe better hire a food taster,” Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel said, according to Fox News. The Daily Caller’s Greg Price piled on saying, “Uh oh, Kamala. You weren’t supposed to say that part out loud!!” Both news personalities were drawing attention to what many believe is the real plan of the DNC: get Kamala in a position to take over as soon as Biden is deemed ineligible to hold office (which could well be the day after inauguration).
President Donald Trump’s campaign also had no problems pushing the question, tweeting that Harris “lets the truth slip.”
However, the conservative pundits and Republican campaigns could have saved themselves the breath since Biden went and backed up his running mate not 24 hours after her gaffe. While speaking in Tampa, FL on Tuesday Biden tipped of veterans about who might really be the commander in chief if Democrats win in November:
“It makes it so much harder for military spouses to find good jobs and build their careers. That has to change,” Biden said. “A Harris-Biden administration is going to relaunch that effort and keep pushing further to make it easier for military spouses and veterans to find meaningful careers to ensure teachers know how to support military children in their classrooms and to improve support for caregivers and survivors so much more than we do now.”
As if to solidify his lack of competency for the job of the most powerful man in the world, Biden mistakenly confused Iran and Iraq when referencing fallen American troops.
Americans have the tough decision of deciding who will lead the country for the next four years, and as if police brutality, immigration, terrorism, and the economy weren’t enough to consider, a potentially false ticket brings another layer of confusion and frustration to an already contentious race. However, if each and every voter takes a moment to focus on the issues most important to them, their choice shouldn’t be as difficult as many would have you believe.
